It looks like we now know why the original Crazy Taxi was so recently resurrected as a free app on the Play Store. It was in preparation for today's release of Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire. That is right, there is now a new Crazy Taxi game out on the Play Store. But don't get your hopes up, as this is not a racing game in the slightest. This time around Sega has seen fit to borrow from the original's popularity and release an idle-tapper with a Crazy taxi skin.

It's time to play... Family Feud Live! (just kidding, this game sucks)

That is right, it is now time to play the Feud, or you know, probably not. It would appear that UMI Mobile is the chosen publisher to bring us a new free-to-play Family Feud Android game. While I would love to say I am surprised to see that this title contains in-app purchases, two currencies, advertisements, and a subscription fee of $4.99 a month for VIP status, it was only inevitable that this is how someone would handle the release of this franchise onto mobile. So strap in folks, this is gonna be a bumpy ride.

[Hands-on] Pokémon: Magikarp Jump, a solid spin-off that revolves around an often forgotten about Pokémon

I have to admit, Pokémon: Magikarp Jump is not what I expected when I first heard about this title. I had figured it would be a cash grab taking advantage of the Pokémon name, but in all actuality, it is an interesting casual game that just about anyone can enjoy.

Sure the touch controls may not lend themselves well to such a highly strategic game, but hey, who cares when you can now play soccer on the go.

Pixelbite, the creators of the Reckless Racing 1-3 and Reckless Getaway, have just released Reckless Getaway 2 onto the Play Store.

On your feet soldier, Terminator Genisys: Future War is on the Play Store

Arnold Schwarzenegger is no stranger to the mobile gaming scene. Two years ago he starred in a Super Bowl commercial for the now popular strategy game Mobile Strike. Schwarzenegger also had his likeness appear in a Glu developed movie tie-in game. Disappointingly, these experiences must have been just the taste he needed of our sweet, sweet in-app purchase fueled market, as there is now a new mobile game bearing his likeness. It is titled Terminator Genisys: Future War, and it is the latest stab at cashing in on the Terminator franchise.

Knights of Pen & Paper 2 goes free-to-play and wipes everyone's save data in the process

That is right, Knights of Pen & Paper 2 has gone completely free. It used to be that you had to pony up $4.99 in order to download the game, now you can install it sans moola. Typically people would celebrate being able to download a once paid game for nothing, but in this case, there are plenty of angry users. It would appear this move to a free-to-play app is not free of any casualties.
